WHO IT’S FOR

Our modern lifestyle and environment make a periodic detoxification protocol an important part of any wellness program. This program is designed to reinvigorate healthy gastrointestinal and liver function to encourage toxin neutralization and excretion.

The G.I. tract is the site of toxin elimination as well as toxin buildup. Encouraging regularity with fiber promotes the removal of waste from the intestines. Many diets are low in dietary fiber and high in processed and refined foods. Without fiber to “sweep out” toxins, waste can linger in the G.I. tract. Supporting gut integrity also limits the amount of toxins that pass into the bloodstream.

Meanwhile, the liver performs a series of enzymatic reactions to neutralize toxic compounds that have been absorbed, including air pollutants, food additives, hormones, pesticides, heavy metals, medications, antibiotics and alcohol. It also synthesizes and secretes bile, which binds to fat-soluble toxins in the intestines so that they may be removed from the body.

This program promotes the natural detoxification functions of the G.I. tract and liver to defend the body from everyday toxin exposures and to promote overall well-being.

HOW IT WORKS

The diet and supplement recommendations of this program are designed to achieve the following:

• Minimize the presence of allergens
Allergens can stress the gut and immune system and compromise their functions. By limiting the amount of ingested allergens, the intestinal tract has a chance to repair and heal and to be in optimal condition for processing waste and undesirable or harmful compounds.

• Optimize acid-alkaline balance
A diet high in animal products and refined carbohydrates can deplete the body of minerals, such as calcium, potassium and magnesium, which are important for bone, heart and overall health. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables preserves these crucial minerals and encourages urinary excretion of toxic compounds.

• Balance gut microflora
Probiotic cultures provide direct support for a healthy intestinal tract by supporting nutrient assimilation and immune defense. The fermentation of soluble fiber, such as psyllium, in the gut also provides optimal conditions for Lactobacilli and other beneficial bacteria to thrive.

• Promote G.I. integrity
The integrity of the intestinal lining is essential for limiting the passage of toxins and allergens into the bloodstream. Amino acids and comforting herbs provide cellular energy, support tissue repair and promote a healthy mucosal lining to maintain G.I. integrity.

• Support G.I. motility and regularity
Insoluble and soluble fiber increase stool volume and transit time when taken with appropriate amounts of water. This means larger and softer stools for healthy bowel movements. As the bulk moves through the intestine, it helps eliminate waste and toxins more quickly, minimizing toxin exposure in the G.I. tract.

• Enhance liver detoxification
Most toxins cannot be readily excreted from the body. The liver must convert them to less toxic compounds or to forms that can easily be eliminated. It does this via a series of Phase I and Phase II enzymatic reactions. This program includes foods, herbs and amino acids that have been shown to encourage the liver’s detoxification enzymes.

• Encourage bile flow
Stimulating the digestive process, specifically bile secretion and bile flow, is an integral factor for toxin elimination. Bile binds to fat-soluble toxins and helps remove them from the G.I. tract, reducing toxin exposure in the gut.

• Chelate heavy metals
The program helps to defend the body from common, mild environmental exposures with natural chelating nutrients. The primary mechanism for this involves a unique low molecular weight modified citrus pectin, which, unlike other pectins, works systemically (not just in the gut) to bind heavy metals. Other herbs and nutrients support the body’s natural processes for elimination and excretion of heavy metals.

DETOXIFICATION IN ACTION

The enzymatic neutralization or modification of toxins by the liver is one of the primary mechanisms by which it facilitates toxin elimination. Phase I enzyme detoxification involves the liver enzyme complex, cytochrome p450, which provides the first line of defense against toxins. The enzymes involved in Phase I liver detoxification either directly neutralize toxins, make them water soluble for excretion via the kidneys, or modify them for the next detoxification phase. The different reactions in the Phase I liver detoxification process require adequate nutrients, enzymes and antioxidants.

Phase II liver detoxification involves a separate group of specialized enzymes that structurally alter toxins in order to neutralize them or to prepare them for excretion. Numerous conjugation pathways are involved in this process, each requiring adequate nutrient cofactors.

The Program

Supplement Overview
The Detox Program focuses on supporting healthy functioning of the liver and its enzymatic detoxification systems. It is designed to be physician-supervised and consists of a hypo-allergenic diet and core detoxification supplements:
Detox Pure Pack
G.I. Fortify
Probiotic-50B
HM Chelate
PureClear

Dietary Overview
Emphasis is placed on the following:

Organic natural whole foods
Minimizing exposure to antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, artificial colors/flavors/sugars, high fructose corn syrup or preservatives is the first line of defense.

An alkaline diet
A diet low in animal proteins and refined carbohydrates and high in potassium-rich fruits and vegetables maintains the body’s stores of calcium, potassium and magnesium and promotes urinary excretion of estrogen like compounds.

A hypo-allergenic diet
Limiting common allergens reduces stress on the G.I. tract and immune system.

Cruciferous vegetables
Encouraging healthy liver detoxification by supporting enzyme activities helps neutralize undesirable compounds.

Adequate fluid intake
Ensuring proper hydration is especially important to facilitate the action of fiber. A minimum of 8–12 oz of water 8 times per day is recommended.
